“great but packed with school children”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

We were really looking forward to going. The paintings were amazing. However we had large groups of school children when we went who were not interested at all in the art and made it very distracting and annoying when your trying to view these stunning paintings.

“Buy your tickets online!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Very informative and lots of Van Gogh pieces including many of his most famous.

Was extremely glad i had bought our tickets online and we could skip the long line.

Great museum shop at the end.

We purchased the audio, but i feel like you learn as much just reading from the wall. Wouldn't spend my time again on the audio.

“Go Van Gogh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

We purchased our tickets in advance to avoid a line, and bought the headset to give us a more in depth tour of the museum. The top floor has an exhibit of another artist. This is one of our favorites art museums in the world.
